The Snowman Tour returns to Derbyshire

[AD] The award-winning Snowman Tour is returning to Derbyshire this December, with scintillating performances in both Derby and Buxton.

Make it a Christmas to remember, with a special screening of the much loved family favourite, The Snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra. Presented by Carrot Productions, the world’s leading performers, their captivating show features some of the UK’s finest musicians.

This magical, nostalgic production is a fitting way to celebrate the festive season and create cherished memories for the whole family. Young and old alike will delight in the heart warming tale accompanied by breath-taking music.

Including Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers

Alongside The Snowman film, a whistle-stop Christmas guide to the orchestra and a visit from the Snowman himself, join everyone’s favourite cheese-loving inventor, Wallace and his trusty companion, Gromit in Aardman’s multi award-winning film, The Wrong Trousers (featuring one of the most iconic train chase sequence ever created).

Carrot Productions’ The Snowman Tour is described as one of the “top family things to do at Christmas” by The Sunday Times, The Guardian and The Telegraph.

Last year, we sent Lovely Local Indie guest writer, Charlotte with her six year old daughter and parents to watch The Snowman Tour. They enjoyed a magical, festive evening. Read the full review here.

“This was a great evening for all ages (how hard is that to nail?) with those of us who loved The Snowman when we were youngsters, enjoying it just as much as our children.”
